How to tell if your mobile is using the same or a different line for different services?
It’s all about line speed, but it’s not the only factor that matters.
The Federal Government has announced it will be introducing an online speed test and other measures to reduce the impact of mobile roaming charges.
It will also require all mobile phones to be connected to a data connection by the end of 2018.
Mobile phone users will also be able to use their mobile to stream content from other devices.
“This is a key part of the Government’s plan to reduce roaming charges, but we want to be sure that the speed of service on the network is up to par with what Australians want and expect,” Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull said.
“It is important that our network is flexible, it is important to ensure that our customers have a smooth and secure mobile experience.”
We are also committed to making sure that mobile internet access remains a priority for all Australians.
“Mr Turnbull said he was “very confident” the changes would have an impact.”
Mobile broadband is now one of the fastest growing technologies in Australia, and that’s a great thing,” he said.
The Government has also announced it has signed a contract to allow the public to access the Government broadband network, which will run from 2018.
